    Have any of you seen this problem? I have a 2001 Accord EX V6 with a
    power driver's seat. Most of the time the power seat works fine.

    However, if the car has been sitting overnight and the outside
    temperature gets down to anywhere around freezing, the seat will not
    move forward or backward (the other movements -- up / down, changing
    the back angle -- work great).

    Perhaps five or ten minutes after the car warms up inside, you can move
    forward and backward just like there was never a problem.

    This doesn't sound like any big deal, except that I am six feet tall
    and my wife is 5' 4". If I have been driving the car the night before
    and she gets in, she can't reach the pedals!

    Any ideas about how to solve this problem?
